This dataset contains Land Cover/Land Use (LCLU) maps for Sindhudurg, Shivamogga and Wayanad, India. LCLU products are state-of-the-art statically stable and area weighted accuracy assessed products. The LCLU product was generated for Kyasanur Forest Disease (KFD), a Zoonotic disease. KFD is an “ecotonal” disease. Diverse forest-plantation mosaics, zone moist evergreen forest and plantation, and low coverage of dry deciduous forest will cause higher risks for KFD. Our LCLU product aimed to separate diverse forest types and plantation and we achieved high accuracy (>90%). The study covers Sindhudurg, Shivamogga, and Wayanad Western Ghats district which belong to Indian state Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Kerala respectively.
